For those of you who remember binging on food videos (pun intended), Binging With Babish started as a Youtube food channel over 10 years ago!

Andrew started the channel back in 2006 and has amassed a whopping 10 million subscribers ever since.

He and his team then built BingingWithBabish.com (using Squarespace) to expand the brand, by blogging his recipes, setting up an eCommerce store for the Babish Cookware, launching his cookbook, and more.

2. Key Nest

Key Nest is a key storage and management company for Airbnb hosts in London.

The way it works is pretty ingenious. Airbnb hosts can drop their house keys at any local store that's partnered with Key Nest; their guests can then collect and return the keys at their (and the hosts) convenience.

Key Nest also runs a popular blog where they frequently share case studies and rental strategies to attract their customer audience, who are mainly Airbnb guests, estate agents, and service apartment owners.

3. The Sorry Girls

They also run a successful blog on their main site, where they share the latest on home decor, room makeovers, upcycling, and fashion.

I like how they take original photographs and make handrawn images for every blog article. You can tell they took the effort behind every home DIY project with before-and-after photos, custom illustrations, and more.

Their blog also has a sider that quickly allows visitors to navigate around the site.

4. The Daileigh

The Daileigh is a fashion and lifestyle blog run by Ashleigh, who wants to inspire women and teach them creative ways to build a functional wardrobe.

Three things that make her blog stand out, in my opinion:

  1. The use of a custom-designed cover image for every article, which by the way, can easily be done with tools like Canva.
  2. She included purchasable ebooks below every article for those who wanted in-depth guides on building a personal style. The ebook(s) and other digital products help bring in extra revenue for the blogging business.
  3. The blog incorporates great typography and layout for ease of reading. Both of these are what Squarespace excels at in the blogging space.

5. Knapsack Creative

6. TinySeed

Not quite the 10,000, but Sharleen runs All the Pretty Pandas where she blogs about beauty, fashion, and her musings in life.

Fun fact, Sharleen is also a part-time opera singer and appeared as a contestant on the 18th season of The Bachelor!

Needless to say, she has very good taste in personal style, but surprisingly (or non -surprisingly), her site looks equally gorgeous. It's chic, classy, and full of editorial-quality photographs.
